Erik Bauersfeld, 90 years old, performed the voices of Admiral Ackbar and Bib Fortuna in "Return of the Jedi." He's still never seen the original "Star Wars," and the recording was a very small job in his respected broadcasting career. But he has developed a nice relationship with fans of the series, returning their letters and refusing to charge money for autographs.
